Botanical Name: Vitex agnus-castus

Chaste Tree also known as chaste berry or Monks pepper is a deciduous shrub or small tree which grows to about 4 meters. It has aromatic palmate leaves which are divided into five or seven elliptic pointed leaflets to 10cm. The leaves are grey-green in colour with downy undersides and the scented lilac flowers are formed on new wood in upright spikes. These are followed by purple to black berries.

Medicinally the ripe berries are used as a relaxant herb that regulates hormonal functions. It is used internally for menstrual and menopausal problems, infertility and involuntary ejaculation. Chaste berries are used to decrease the symptoms of PMS such as breast tenderness, irritability, fluid retention and bloating, and headache. They can also be used by both sexes for hormone related acne.

The dried berries are used as a substitute for pepper and in Middle Eastern spice mixes.

Growing Conditions

Chaste tree will grow in a wide range of soils and climates and is frost hardy. A prune during winter will keep tree in compact bushy shape. Vitex is grown as a garden ornamental and has naturalized in tropical and sub-tropical areas.

    Chaste Tree and White Sage

    My plants arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. The thank you note was lovely and the tip sheet useful. I was particularly happy with the white sage as i have had successive failures with it (purchases made elsewhere) and this one is settling in well and showing signs of new growth even in very adverse conditions and with some leaf burn. I will definitely be making future purchases from Herb Cottage and making recommendations to others! Thank you :-)

    This has been a great purchase, it came freshly packed and extremely fast.I originally bought this product with a few other raw herbs to make up a mix to help my horse who is twitch and skittish, after taking the herb mix she is a lot more relaxed and happy to be around people again
